Government Degree College Poonch

(J&K)
‘Accredited B+Grade by NAAC’

College Profile :


Government Degree College, Poonch was established on 11th November 1955. It initially started functioning as an intermediate college in the old "Resham Ghar" building which existed near "Mohalla Dungas". Prof.R.L.Bausr, an eminent educationist of our state was its first Principal. In 1961, it was elevated to the status of a degree college and Prof. P.N. Pushap, another great educationist and scholar, headed this institution during its development phase. During this period (1955-1961) the college was shifted to present location, the upper portion of which was a part of "Favara Garden" and the lower part across the main road was covered with barracks and bunkers vacated by Army, who shifted to "Resham Ghar site". The college theory classes used to be held in bunkers and barracks while the science practical work was performed in temporary laboratories set up in the old portionof the "Dak Baglow" Poonch. The science laboratories were later shifted to present science block after its construction in 1969-70. Unfortunately, a part of the college campus was converted into Gujjar and Bakarwal Hostel, ITI campus and Horticulture Nursery etc., and the college retained only the portion of playground. It is for this reason the various building blocks were constructed in a limited space, adjoining to the thickly populated locality "Mohalla Panditan". The college administration, has tried its best to give some face lift to it by raising boundary wail and stream-lining the available space into lawns. The college was earlier affiliated to Jammu and Kashmir University, which later converted in to two separate universities, the University of Jammu and the University oy Kashmir. The college is presently affiliated to the University of Jammu and is recognized by University Grants Commission. The College celebrated its golden Jubilees in the year 2005 was also badly affected in the devastating earthquake of October, 2005. Thecollege offers undergraduate courses in Arts, sciences, vocational course in sericulture and B.C.A as a professional course. We have also started starting career oriented courses and certificate courses in some subjects (Functional English and Sericulture). The infrastructure of the college is constantly upgraded cater to the growing needs of the students with newly introduced subjects we are sure that the products of this college shall be fully equipped to meet the challenges in the new millennium.
